Olatunji Disu : Hospital Manager Arrested for Graduate’s Death in Rivers

The manager of Paragon Clinics and Imaging Diagnosis, a private health facility in Port Harcourt, has been arrested by the Rivers State Police Command. This comes after the tragic death of Rebekah Sekidika, a first-class graduate of Micro Biology from Benson Idahosa University, during a procedure at the hospital.

Rebekah’s father, Sampson Sekidika, shared that his daughter went to the facility for a routine check-up before her planned trip to the United Kingdom for further studies. However, she tragically passed away during a procedure that was supposed to be simple and did not require surgery.

The police have confirmed the arrest of the manager as part of their investigation into the incident. They had previously invited the doctor and the person who administered the anaesthetic for questioning, but they did not comply.

The matter has now been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for a thorough investigation. Two other individuals who were initially arrested have been released as their roles at the facility were deemed to have no direct connection to the incident.

The spokesperson for the state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, expressed disappointment at the lack of cooperation from the doctor and the anaesthetist. She assured that the police are committed to uncovering the truth behind Rebekah’s untimely death.

The community in Port Harcourt is reeling from this tragic event, as Rebekah’s future was bright and full of promise. The investigation will shed light on what went wrong at the clinic and provide answers to her grieving family.
